“Mission Moments” – The Secret Ingredient to a Successful Company

Written by Don Yaeger on . Posted in Chasing Greatness Blog

Have you ever experienced a moment so powerful, that it motivated you to work harder, live better, or to be Greater?

Phil Lussier, board chairman of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, describes these as “mission moments.” Lussier began his experience with the company as a Make-A-Wish parent. After his seriously ill child had been granted a wish, Lussier was emotionally empowered to become involved in the foundation. Since then, he has continuously stressed to other Make-A-Wish employees and volunteers the importance of remembering the company mission by experiencing moments. At every board meeting, Lussier has a wish child make a visit and share with the board members about their Make-A-Wish experience. These heartfelt moments remind everyone in the room of the true purpose for their hard work.
